    Alright, a few months ago I posted a thread in Marketplace where I assumed Apple would void the warranty on my mac mini because I installed non-Apple ram myself. Everyone told me the exact opposite, that RAM installations don't void AppleCare.

    So, I called, and a couple of Apple employees verified that indeed they don't void the warranty, but they would not cover damage caused by the RAM or by installation of the RAM.

    Then again, the Mac mini manual says there are no user serviceable parts.

    I am so confused. Help.

    They will only void the warranty if you damage the unit.

    But they will also not warranty any parts you add.

    So change the drive and RAM, and either is found to be the cause of the unit not working -- and you may end up with a Apple service diagnostic fee, or a bill for the repair.

    that's what i figured and that's what i was told, but apple makes it clear in the manual that it's not user serviceable, so I was a bit confused :rolleyes:
